An awards ceremony for nine finalists was held at Starmount Forest Country Club in Greensboro. Attendees included Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan, Guilford College President Kent Chabotar and nearly 200 business leaders.

An independent panel of judges drawn from Piedmont academia evaluated all of the local companies entered in the contest.

The awards ceremony is sponsored by the Greensboro Chapter of the Society of Financial Service Professionals in partnership with Davenport, Marvin, Joyce & Co., LLP and DMJ Wealth Advisors, LLC and First Citizens Bank.

This year’s nine finalists are: Airsoft R Us Tactical, Anderson-Moore Builders, Duncan Exxon, Flow Automotive, Miss Jenny’s Pickles, Planet Fitness, Samet Corp., Spevco and The Soap Lady. The announcement was made by PBEA Judging Chair Ruth Petty.
